Personable, Professional
Although my case didn't end as I had hoped, Brian did everything that he could to put forth the best case. From deposing my ex to see how he would answer in court to not being afraid to ask the tough questions whether of me or my ex in court. Brian is very easy to talk to, and I recommend him if you have any need for a Family Law attorney.

Experienced and passionate
Mr. Blackham handled my case fairly quickly. With my circumstances, I was able to keep my family safe because of his expertise. When I was ready to give in from being worn down, Mr. Blackham kept fighting. He was sincere yet strong when fighting for what was right in my case. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Blackham for any complicated or "simple" situation.

Compassionate, Smart, Strategic
I highly recommend Brian! He is a sharp strategist and truly cares for his clients. Brian advised me of what I could achieve and equally importantly he counseled me on what I probably would not be able to achieve. His advice turned out to save me financially and helped me attain the end goal of protecting my daughter and my assets. Thank you Brian and staff!

GREAT LAWYER
Brian and his staff were extremely helpful with handling my custody case. With every question that I had, he responded with great advice & in a timely manner. I highly recommend him if you are in search of a lawyer who cares about your case. He helped me to secure primary physical and full custody of my daughter. It was a stressfull time period but he walked me through the process with as much ease as possible. Choose your lawyer wisely, because it will benefit you emotionally & physically when you choose the RIGHT one for your case.

Absolutely great at what he does... AND he cares.
I went through a pretty stressful divorce and there was absolutely nothing easy about it. Me and my ex were at odds on everything from the get-go, including financial issues and the child timeshare... I interviewed 3 different attorneys before finally deciding to go with Brian Blackham. From day one, Brian (and Ishi Kunin) fought diligently to protect my rights as a father. I firmly believe in the adage, "you get what you pay for." There is nothing cheap about a long, drawn out, bitter divorce... But with Brian Blackham, you will absolutely get what you pay for.

Persistence pays off
Brian Blackham was excellent during the trial that resulted in primary custody for me, a father, after 8 long years of trying to ensure my children have the environment they both wanted and deserved. Simply put, he delivered. The entire law office was always straight with me, understood my situation, didn't take advantage of my desire to help my children, and on both occasions when they recommended I take action, they proved right. They don't tell you what you want to hear, they tell you how it really is. As a result, I didn't just have attorneys, I had a group of talented people in the trenches with me. They were timely, gave suggestions on how to minimize costs, attentive, and at times, tough on me, which kept me focused. They are the reason my children are in a better place today.

Brian E. Blackham Recommendation
Brian and his entire team were absolutely wonderful to work with. They were professional and ethical at all times. Family matters can sometimes be difficult for all parties involved. They were always calm, and helpful, and willing to assist. They helped me keep my head on straight, and resolved my case with as little drama as possible. The fees are reasonable and I would recommend Brian to any of my family, friends, or colleagues.

Smart, Dedicated, Professional & Passionate about my case.
After 3 Judges, 3 Lawyers and 12 years in and out of Family Court; Only now do I feel confident in recommending an attorney. This attorney knows family law in Nevada and not once did I feel that I was just “another custody case”. Every motion, counter motion, and hearing, was what was in the best interest of my children and what needed to be done. His knowledge, hard work and dedication, brought about the best possible outcome for me and my family.

On point
Brian was excellent to work with. This is my second time using kunin & carman. Brian kept me informed through every step of the process. On hearing day he fought to get me everything I deserved and more.

AMAZING LAWYER!! Awesome firm!!
I met Brian in February 2013. He immediately put me at ease, and jumped in with both feet when beginning my divorce process. The Nevada laws aren't always in favor of the best interest of the children. Brian realizes this and will fight to try and balance it out. One of the things that stood out most with this firm was their commitment to the best interest of any children involved. Before I even retained them, they were encouraging me to get in for the mandatory parent class. Not because it was mandatory, but because it would help me minimize the negative effects of divorce on my children. Divorce is never an easy process, but with Brian Blackham and the K&C team on your side it will make this transition in your life less overwhelming. I feel blessed to have had them fighting in my corner.

Extremely happy client
Mr. Blackham made the process of my children's custody as easy and as stress free as possible. Whenever I had a question he was there to answer it. Mr. Blackham is extremely knowledgeable in his field of work, prompt with his responses and goes above and beyond what one would expect. I will most definitely recommend him to anyone that is going through a custody dispute.

Essential talent
Brian is a talented professional that will work for you 100%! He has a brilliant, powerful, to the point way of writing up the facts and presenting the facts himself in court. He represented me in my recent divorce, keeping a mindset of him putting himself in the oppositions shoes, so to be checking he's doing his best to maximize our case. Brian was sensitive to my needs as I had never been through any legal proceedings before and needed remedial help. He created smart, realistic, by the book steps, in line with what we thought the court would conclude, and it was successful, plus some. I could not be happier with Brian as my attorney and the law office, not just because our case was a success, but because I also experienced us all going through each step properly, always being advised of the pros and cons. Brian can be proud of his practice as he does the right things right.!

Divorce and Custody
Brian was recommended to me by a family member who is an attorney. Brian was always responsive to my needs, listened intently, followed my direction or gave legitimate reasons why we needed to go a different route and remained professional at all times. He was always prepared for court appearances and his ethics were never questioned. Brian has an extensive amount of knowledge and knows how to deal with other attorneys who don't exhibit his consistent level of professionalism while maintaining his own. I will and have recommended Brian to others who need good legal representation.

Property Settlement Case
Brian is an awesome attorney. During the case he handled for me he was always very thorough and responded to my phone calls and emails. My case had unusual circumstances and was tough on me since the other party was very difficult. But I always felt confident that Brian was on my side and would do everything he could to settle it fairly on my behalf. I would reccomend him to anyone and already have.

Outstanding Service
Brian was a great attorney. He was always quick to respond to my phone and emails. Brian was understanding of my requests in a very difficult custody battle and very compassionate when I would lose my cool. He always made me feel like he was on my side and fighting for me. I would reccomend him to anyone.

Hatred for Patriotic Americans
Not only did this firm provide advice to opposing counsel while intoxicated at at event in Reno - they regularly made me feel 100% accountable for my actions while simply protecting my young children from the Covid vaccine. My attorney and her boss, Brian, are through and through entitled liberals with no motives other than to destroy their clients that see things differently than they do. Brian hates this country, our morals, as well as those of his conservative clients. I have never felt more degraded, mortified, and slandered than I did working with him through the beginning of my divorce. If you have any scruples - stay away from this monster and the firm they have created.
